Bella broke up with John just weeks before they were due to get married last year. She says that she has been “working on [her]self” after the split. However, there are days where she sheds a tear over her break-up with John.
She said that it is hard to pick yourself but “you really, truly, have to love yourself and every day dedicate something to you that is making you better.” She said that it is really important to “let yourself cry.” This is one of the things her “life coach helped a lot with”.
The Total Bellas star notes that it’s essential for her to “find a quiet place” to cry.
Furthermore, she gave an insight into her and John’s relationship. She said that they ” had an amazing relationship and an amazing bond and a lot of love for each other.” So, when she needs to cry, she cries because “crying is healing.” Also, on top of it, she meditates.
In addition to that, Nikki understands the “confusion” that surrounds their split, especially since they are still so close. She admits that the “timing was off” for their marriage.
